  • Mr Moore is a dazzling new arrival: a witty, intelligent and hugely entertaining writer

    Wall Street Journal
  • A joy of a biography, offering up a blizzard of maritime and political fascinations... Moore has written a book that makes the case for his little ship both compelling and irrefutable

    Simon Winchester, New York Times
  • Moore uses Endeavour as a window to the age of enlightenment. Like the period it recounts, this book has enormous energy, creativity and self-confidence. It's a feast of endless exotic dishes, all delivered with immense style

    Gerard DeGroot, The Times Books of the Year
  • Beautifully constructed, his book is not just the history of a single vessel, but a window into the intellectual and political life of the age of enlightenment, from the thrill of botanical discovery to the horror of Cook's last moments on the beaches of Hawaii

    Dominic Sandbrook, Sunday Times Books of the Year
  • A dazzling combination of science and adventure, lyrically evocative descriptions of lush tropical landscapes and salt-stung seascapes, and a portrait of an age…an absolute joy from start to finish, and surely my history book of the year

    Christopher Hart, Sunday Times
